Chapter Summary

This front matter section on this book The Acts of Thomas contains the table of contents, a short list of abbreviations, and the preface to second edition. In this book the commentary on the Acts of Thomas has been based upon the Syriac edition published by William Wright, Apocryphal Acts of the Apostles, London 1871. The Acts of Thomas can be divided into a number of "Acts" which end with a description of his martyrdom. The contents can be compared with those in the other four ancients Acts, viz. those of Paul, John, Peter and Andrew. The Acts of Thomas are striking for their passages with extensive christological remarks, the description of Baptism and Eucharist and two ancient hymns.

Keywords: Acts of Thomas; Syriac edition; William Wright
